"We opened our in-ground pool a week ago and just had to write. This is the first time in 20 years that my husband and I were able to successfully lift the cover off without dumping debris into the pool. The Pool Pillow Pal allowed all water and debris to remain on the edges of the cover where we could remove it all. This allowed for easier removal of the cover and also allowed us to swim in a nice, clear pool within 24 hours for the first time."
Thanks Pool Pillow Pal!
A new customer tried out The Pool Pillow Pal and really loved it! He stated:
"I love it. You need to shout from tree tops about this thing. For all our viewers, what this product also does is holds the pillow in place."
He put a video of him using The Pool Pillow Pal for the first time. Check it out here:
"Works as advertised - BETTER! I have a 28ft round above ground pool in upstate in NY. This item enabled my pool cover to make it from its Winter close through its Spring opening with the pillow centered and stable, for the first time in 35 years. It also made covering and uncovering the pool smoother and easier than ever before."

Testimony from a service professional:
Hi, My Name is Joe. I've been with Brothers Pool, one of Ct's largest, most respected, privately owned pool company's since we've been in existence. I know the swimming pool industry as well as anybody can, especially Installations, Service, and Maintenance. I've literally opened and winterized thousands of pools. I've always dreaded the installation of the air pillow. I was never comfortable tying it off to the pool framing (knowing the chances were slim that it would hold its position). Then came the task of dragging the cover over the tie off cable and pillow (not an easy task for the vertically challenged, lol. I'm 5' 7"). This is the first season in my 30 years in the industry that I haven't had any issues with the dreaded air pillow thanks to this simple, easy to use, little piece of ingenuity called The Pool Pillow Pal. I honestly think this new product will become as much a necessity to closing your above ground pool as your air pillow is. As a service professional The Pool Pillow Pal cut my time by half while closing swimming pools.

"Closing my pool was so much better using the Pool Pillow Pal! The pillow went on easy and stayed in place. Every year I would tie the pillow and it never stayed in the center of the pool. The grommets on the pillow always seemed to rip from tying it and the pillow would shift off to the side of the pool."
"I was a little skeptical at first. I really hate putting in pool pillow every year but what a snap. Did it all by my self. No yelling at the wife this year. Really love this product. I would
recommend it in a heart beat."
I DON’T KNOW IF YOU REMEMBER ME. I’M AL CARBONE SR, THE FATHER OF BROTHERS POOL. WE MET WHEN YOU CAME TO OUR STORE TRYING TO MARKET YOUR PRODUCT. WHEN I REALIZED HOW SIMPLE IT WOULD NOW BE TO INSTALL AN AIR PILLOW WHEN INSTALLING A WINTER COVER ON AN ABOVE GROUND POOL I KNEW RIGHT THEN THAT THIS PRODUCT WOULD BE A BIG SELLER. WHEN AN ABOVE GROUND POOL CUSTOMER CAME INTO OUR STORE TO BUY THEIR WINTER PRODUCTS WE WOULD TELL THEM TO TAKE 5 MINUTES AND WATCH THE VIDEO WHICH SHOWS HOW TO INSTALL THE POOL PILLOW PAL. AT THAT POINT BY WATCHING THE VIDEO IT SOLD THE PRODUCT. I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR TAKING TO TIME TO INTRODUCE YOUR PRODUCT TO US AT BROTHERS POOL AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO SELLING HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF THEM.

I AM NOW ENJOYING MY WINTER IN FLORIDA, BUT I BEEN CHECKING ON HOW THE PPP IS SELLING AND HAD NOTHING BUT GOOD TOLD ME...
"Wow. What a difference it was using the Pool Pillow Pal. It was so much easier to put the air pillow into my pool. I did not even need any help. No struggling with dragging the cover over the pillow. Great product. Will use is it again next season."
"I usually install my pool cover by myself and it has always been difficult. This year I was asked to try the pool pal and it made the job so much easier. I was able to install the pillow
exactly in the middle of my pool cover, which allowed me the time to attach the cover before it fell into the pool water. I would recommend the Pool Pillow Pal to all of my friends and family."
"When I first heard about the Pool Pillow Pal I thought "what a fantastic idea". Having owned pools all my life I know the dreaded feeling of having to close it each season... jumping in the pool as the weather gets colder, not to mention the water temperature and trying to tie the pillow in the middle of the pool. And then hoping it stays there while we attempt to drag the cover over. What a pain! The Pool Pillow Pal is so easy and all in one step. Pull it over the pool and tie it down...done! Love it! Wish someone had invented this years ago!"
"I just used the product yesterday and it was great!!! It was me and my daughter. We followed the directions on the container and within 10 minutes, we had the cover on the pool. It was so much easier than tying down the pillow and then trying to pull the cover over the pillow. It should be very easy to remove the cover in the spring too. Great idea."
Below is correspondence from a gentleman in Illinois, Jon, who stopped using air pillows a few years ago due to the hassle, and tried The Pool Pillow Pal:
“Your pillow pal sounds interesting to me, but I have a question. What does one cost? Your web site doesn't say. I haven't used an air
pillow for a few years now, because we live in the middle of a corn field in Illinois, and get some horrendous winds in the winter. Pillows usually end up on the lee side of the pool. Any
pricing info you can get to me would be appreciated. Thank you.”
Pool Closing Comments:
“We used the pool pillow pal this year and so far so good! How can something so simple work so well? I just wish I had thought of it! I
think you have a good product at a good price. I'll let you know in the spring how it did over the winter.”
Pool Opening Comments:
“Just opened the pool a couple of weeks ago, and the pillow was still in place and still blown up! A first for me! I'm very satisfied with
the pillow pals performance. I will certainly use it every year from now on. Thank you.”
We recently moved into a house that has a pool which is great for the kids! At the end of our first year, I had to close the pool so I purchased an expensive system which cost about $200. It was a NIGHTMARE to put together! Once the pool was covered, there were so many cords attached to the ball that it created 8 pockets of water and debris accumulating which made it very difficult and time-consuming to clean off and open in the spring. I used The Pool Pillow Pal the following season and what a difference! It went on so quickly and easily, stayed in place throughout the winter and it was simple to drain the water and clean off to open the pool the following year, and costs less that $10! It's a no-brainer!
"This is the second year closing our pool using the Pool Pillow Pal. It makes the process SO much easier. Previously we secured the pillow by tying with ropes to the deck posts.. Difficult to get the pillow centered and to stay there while putting
the cover on."
"Easy to use and worked just like advertised."
"I saw this item on the internet and said when I was ready to close my pool I would give it a try. I did and what a saver it is. I always tied the pillow to the walls. The ties would break. this made it so easy."
"You know, I was really torn on purchasing this mainly because of the price. I feel it is a little too high. But, I have to say...it was really nice not having to wrestle with the pillow and getting the cover over it. So far so good. We have had some pretty intense wind and it it's still in place. We did take the advice of putting a couple of inches of water on top of the cover."
"Worked great.. Centered the pillow and keeps it there! Hubby was so happy to not have to fumble getting it right!"
"Very easy to use, excellent written instructions. I had a momentary problem finding a way to pull the backing off the sticky part, and 'used an X-acto Knife to assist me in getting the edge up for grabbing. Application went smoothly, as did the placing into the pool."
"Works great. No more ropes to tie to the pillow. Stays in place. Also helps covering the pool. 33FT round and was able to do it by myself."
I've been doing it the hard way for the last 12 years. Tying a rectangular pillow to the sides and trying to get the winter cover over it was a huge chore. This pillow pal made it so much easier. No ropes to mess with, just float it to the middle. I'm curious to see how it holds up over the winter.
I bought this last year to use at the
end of the season but couldn't find it at closing time. Found it in time to use this year! We have had a few heavy winds so far this Fall and the pillow is holding up the cover beautifully. So much
easier than the way we covered the pool last year. A really terrific item!
Update...The Pool Pillow Pal worked beautifully. I was amazed at the way it kept my pool pillow from moving. We get some pretty heavy winds in Northern WV and the pillow stayed in the center all winter. I'll be buying one for this year!
